At Chirosport, cold laser therapy is one more powerful tool that is available for your integrated care plan. The clinical benefits of laser energy were discovered in 1967. Since the late 1970s laser treatment for pain has been widely used in Europe and Asia. Now, since its FDA approval in 2001, this therapy is quickly gaining popularity in the United States. Recent research studies for soft tissue injuries (muscle, ligament and joint) show that patients who received cold laser therapy in addition to their other treatment demonstrated a 40–50% faster rate of repair and greater strength of the injured tissues when treatment was completed. The evidence is compelling. Cold Laser therapy is a safe and effective modality that is proving to play an important role in rehabilitative health care.
